 SIGNED LETTER FROM FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE TO ROSALIND NASH, JULY 25, 1888 PEN [5:196] July 25/88 10, SOUTH STREET, PARK LANE. W. [printed address] Dearest Rosalind, Nothing but time has been wanting to me to write down what generally, if I am asked, I give e.g. to S. Africa India &c &c. I now enclose a little list & hope to send another -- Good speed to your "reference "Library for co-operators". May I send them some books some day? I hope I am not too late. A thousand thanks for beautiful yellow lilies, white roses & maidenhair fern I received from Brighton. I doubt they came from you & Barbarina, from whom I had a charming letter. Would she if she is coming thro' London on her way to Maswood sleep here? Sam thrives in wisdom & knowledge & interest -- & in stature (mental & physical) day by day -- but not in rosiness -- He dines here tonight & goes to Embley tomorrow, I am happy to say. I was going to write to Mamma to thank her for dear letters & lovely flowers -- & ask if Barbarina would sleep here on her way -- but if I have not time, give her my great love. What do you say to Match-girls' strike? Could they have `co-operated'? Men Trades Unionists have interfered with good effect; Bryant & May's Co, hearing them with courtesy & kindness & accepting some things as not previously known to them -- & girls have resumed work, I understand, on terms agreed on by themselves & the men Trades' Unionists. Success, my Rosy, to all your good undertakings -- Love to Papa ever your loving Aunt Florence Have you been `co-operating' in furrin parts in England?
